JFF: Emmy Predictions

  • (Edited)
Since we did Oscar predictions earlier this year (and in previous years), I thought maybe we could do the Emmys this year as well. But please don't think I am advocating we do this for every awards show, just the Oscars and the Emmys.

I'm going to stick to the major categories since there are sooo many. The ceremony is on Sunday the 17th and all votes must be in by 9/13 - no changes after that. Good luck!
